Reduction mammoplasty - reduction in size and improvement in the shape of the mammary glands. Hypertrophy (increase) of the mammary glands can lead not only to aesthetic and physical discomfort, but also to health problems: pain in the back and neck, violation of posture, osteochondrosis in the cervical and thoracic spine, respiratory failure.
In this regard, reduction mammoplasty is often performed not according to aesthetic, but by medical indications. This operation is one of the most difficult in aesthetic surgery. As a result of the operation, the breast becomes smaller, lighter and more aesthetic.
In plastic surgery breast reduction surgery is recommended to be done after the birth and feeding of the baby, as during the reduction mammoplasty a significant number of lobules of the mammary gland and ducts leading to the nipples are removed.
Technique of operation The essence of the operation is to remove breast tissue, excess skin, fat and move the nipple-areola complex to a higher position. There are many methods of this operation. As a result of the operation, scars forming on the skin of the anterior surface of the gland resemble the inverted letter "T" or the letter "L". The operation is performed under general anesthesia, lasting from 2 to 3 hours. And requires hospitalization for 1-2 days.
